Nikki’s  Page


Woof woof woof!

Hello everyone.  My name is Nikki.  I’m a 14 year old terrier mix. Just like most terriers I’m very active and love to “investigate” everything around me.  I was so active Mom had to wait until I was 12 before I could be a therapy dog.  Now I love it. 

I was found under a trailer in Minnesota when it was 15 degrees below zero.  I was only about a year old and I had a puppy of my own I was trying to keep alive.  I was scared until some nice people took me to the humane society.  Mom and my sister Heidi found me there and the rest is history!

I’m part miniature schnauzer so I can do the miniature schnauzer “yodel”.  I love to throw my head back and yodel to tell Mom when I’m really excited.  When I see my bag with all the READing Paws things I start to yodel so Mom knows I’m ready to go!

Sometimes Mom calls me “sheriff Nik”.  I’m not sure why. I guess it’s just a nick name. She found a sheriff’s badge with my name on it.  We put it on my therapy vest and it makes me feel really official.  When I see my vest come out of the closet I know I’m special. I love to put on my vest and strut around the room.  I can’t wait to show you my vest.  Please come and read with me.
